You are awesome. We set the goal 100 million base captures in our December dog tag challenge, and you came in at a whopping 105 million last night. Mission accomplished!
We are now unlocking the “Good Riddance” dog tag for all Battlefield 3 players. You should see it on Battlelog and in the game as you read this. Great job, and have a great gaming Christmas.

Server update eliminates 3 bugs
We have started deployment of a new server update on all formats. This update has three bug fixes (and nothing else):
Fixes immortality bug
We have identified and eliminated a bug where players in specific cases would be rendered invulnerable.
Fixes broken spawn points in TDM mode on Strike at Karkand
We have identified and eliminated a bug where players would only spawn in a few places on the east side of the map.
Fixes a crash in Gun Master mode
We have identified and eliminated a crash issue in Gun Master mode. To definitively eliminate this crash issue, we have had to implement a change so that players can no longer move in preround in Gun Master mode.
It usually takes ~15 minutes on consoles for these updates to be rolled out. On PC you should see these updates in about 24 hours on a majority of the servers. Note that during the console server update window (for 15 minutes) you will not be able to play multiplayer.
Aftermath available on X360 and PC
Battlefield 3: Aftermath is available for sale today for all players. You can purchase Aftermath for PC right now in the Battlelog Store.
For Xbox 360, Aftermath will appear throughout the day world-wide. As always, Premium members get all expansion packs with early access at no extra charge.
You can see the all-new crossbow and Scavenger game mode in action in the Aftermath launch trailer below.
